Panel 4: The Digital Divide or Digital DisruptionThis panel will address the digital divide in terms of those that have access to these technologies and between those who don’t – such as older generations and economically, culturally or socially disadvantaged communities that do not have easy access to technology. It will also look at how the digital divide also affects artists, film makers, etc who may or may not have the right digital skills to innovate in their respective fields and how they can be helped to bridge the gap.

Panel 5: Concluding Thoughts: The Future of the Cultural Institutions and the Cultural Worker in the Digital Age
This Roundtable session moderated by Mr. Warren Fernandez will look at how digital technologies will change the way we work in culture, from modifying or making professions (such as the institutional curator, lighting designer or conservator) redundant, to changing what we expect of our experiences from culture, to the redefining of organisations such as museums. Will museums be replaced by virtual museums? Will other forms of culture such as theatre be equally impacted? What will the future of the object, the people who collect it, care for it, conserve it and promote it be? Will there be audiences still for concerts, theatre recitals or will audiences be happy with watching it on line? Will performing artistes need to learn their craft form Masters personally, or can they learn this online? These and many more questions will be asked and debated during this concluding panel.
